'Bigfoot Ballyhoo' Has Some Crying Bigfoot Bull

Despite evidence so compelling as to redefine the very term "blobsquatch", Bigfoot enthusiasts like Autumn Williams are having trouble buying into assertions presented by the likes of Bill Emery and Linda Newton-Perry that a savage monster stalks the wooded confines of Oregon's Sru Lake.

This may have to do with the fact that Newton-Perry's Bigfoot Ballyhoo website has presented incredulous statements such as witnessing official warning signs posted lakeside that mysteriously cannot be photographed due to the nature of the material from which they have been manufactured. To support all of this, are poorly shot, highly rasterized image of what seems to be a tree stump, upon which a dark, amorphous blob appears.

Williams, an Oregonian, visited the lake for herself, finding neither the reported mysterious signs nor the destruction expected from a rampaging, homicidal Bigfoot. She did manage to record a strange call, but she readily admits this may have come from a "horny elk".

Over the course of this 'Bigfoot Ballyhoo', other images have been posted, none of which appear compelling enough to warrant scrutiny. But the blog certainly has its admirers:

"Thank you for the picture. It is good and makes big foot real to some in my family that didn't believe in the past. Why?"

"It's not real clear but seems to be some creature of some sort walking. If I understand the photo, the thing in the background is a big root wad from a old tree? If I'm correct the creature looks to be very large and tall. Heavy build would indicate great weight wouldn't it." [ the logic of if that's a stump, it looks to be very large baffled me - ch]

However, we will have to see how long these admirers hang outside Bigfoot Ballyhoo's balcony, pining away. Apparently one of the shots taken by Emery near the lake was confirmed to be nothing more than a frame from the 1977 movie Sasquatch: The Legend of Bigfoot.
